Please Note

Orion has made the difficult decision to close our warehouse facility in the Netherlands. With the continuing supply chain/logistics challenges and slowness in the economy we have found that it is not economically feasible to maintain operations in the UK and Europe.

We have therefore stopped taking orders on this website. We apologize for any inconvenience.

We will continue to have Orion dealers in Europe to meet the needs of Orion consumers. We will also continue to honor the 30-Day product return period as well as honoring the Orion warranty for purchases made in the UK and Europe.

Our US-based Customer Service Representatives are here to help. Contact them via email at support@telescope.com or in the United Kingdom, via phone at 0-800-041-8146 (Monday-Friday between the hours of 1300 and 2400 GMT).

My favorite Orion equipment is my 10x50 binoculars - I have a great valley view and they give a crisp detailed image during the day, and at night are perfect for scanning the sky, moon, and of course comets! I got started in astronomy in 1970 with a 3" reflector. I've had a C8 and now have an LX200, with several nice Orion eyepieces. I have photos of Halley's comet from 1986 and used to frequent Fremont Peak near San Juan Bautista. Cheers! [and keep looking up]
